In partnership with the Greenville County Library System our spring Storytime Ballet performance, The Day the Crayons Quit was choreographed by IB Trainee Program Director Josha Williams and features dancers from the Trainee Program in addition to select students from International Ballet Academy. This virtual performance is now available for viewing on the Greenville County Library website.
Thanks to the Greenville Metropolitan Arts Council for their support of the project, and to author Drew Daywalt and composer Kristofer Maddigan for permission to use their story and music in the video performance.
The highest level of classical ballet training for the young student to the professional dancer; Building technique, musicality, coordination, & strength through structured classes; Community-focused with high value placed on respect, self-discipline, responsibility, and peer support.
The IB Circle includes all of the support arms of International Ballet – Individuals Donors, Corporate Sponsors, and the Assemblé Guild. International Ballet is able to serve the community in a much larger way due to the circle of supporters who make it possible.
A home to hundreds of dancers, parents, volunteers, and committed patrons – united in focus on community, respect, responsibility, and generosity – using dance as a means for teaching life lessons.

“Performing arts education is a vehicle used to teach life lessons. These lessons can change young lives. Youths learn to listen, to work with and respect others, to respect and honor themselves, to be proud of who they are and what they can accomplish, and most importantly to help them know that they matter and are loved. Why wouldn’t anyone be proud to play a small role in their journey? To see the smiles on their faces and receive their hugs is so meaningful. We love the children and are proud to be a part.”
